IQ&IM Privacy Policy

Internet Privacy Policy

The Institute of Qigong and Integrative Medicine (IQ&IM) places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate IQ&IM’s firm commitment to the privacy of our members and website users. This policy explains what types of information is collected by the IQ&IM website, and how this information is used.

Email Privacy and Communication

IQ&IM participants that register for classes and sign up to receive IQ&IM’s e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and email address). IQ&IM may use this information for specific, limited purposes. IQ&IM does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.  You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.  Please email [email protected] or call IQ&IM at (206) 290-6072.  At the time of sending any email communication to you, we will also give you the opportunity to unsubscribe from our emailing list.

IP addresses

The IQ&IM uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.iqim.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.

Cookies

The IQ&IM web site uses “cookie” messages to automatically provide better services. The cookies we use are anonymous, and are used to remind the software who you are and your preferences on our website, based on what you’ve done and the information you’ve entered before. The cookie is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let IQ&IM take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in. They also let IQ&IM track your usage of www.iqim.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular, and also allow our server to exchange data efficiently with you. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your web browser accordingly.

How Your Information May Be Used

IQ&IM uses your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send email alerts to you; or to answer your requests. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to anonymously track visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example).

External Links

The www.iqim.org includes links to external websites. These links do not fall under the www.iqim.org domain, and IQ&IM is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.

Modifications

IQ&IM may amend this privacy policy from time to time; please review it periodically. We maintain the option to modify this Privacy Policy at any time by electronic notice posted on our website. Your continued use of our website after the date that such notices are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms.
